CbI to host two Africa risk roundtables in July

CbI is delighted to announce we are producing two regional meetings in London in July 2014.  

North Africa Hardball on 1 July is CbI's biannual roundtable meeting which monitors North Africa's changing political landscape. Critical subjects to be tackled at this meeting include the outcome of presidential elections in Egypt and Algeria, progress towards elections in Tunisia and Libya and the future of Islamist political parties from Rabat to Cairo.

Energy and finance-focused sessions will assess the macro-economic stability of these countries in the context of rapidly growing energy consumption combined with declining oil and gas production in Libya, Algeria and Egypt, shale development plans in Tunisia and new offshore exploration in Morocco.

The interactive debates will be led by Jon Marks, CbI chairman – a political scientist with a deep knowledge of the politics and economies of Africa and the Middle East, based on more than 30 years of travel, study and analysis.

East Africa Hardball on 2 July will examine the personalities, events and trends that will influence politics, policy and business across Eastern Africa and offers participants the opportunity to engage with a network of specialists focusing on the countries of the region, from Tanzania to South Sudan.

For the last eight years, Africa Hardball has brought together policy-makers, industry decision-makers and analysts seeking to make sense of the continent’s political volatility and investment trends. Held behind closed doors in a roundtable format, Hardball is played out under the Chatham House Rule, whereby participants can openly discuss critical issues but must not be quoted by name.

Regular delegates attending the Hardball series include senior representatives from BP, BG, Shell, Statoil, Hess, Kosmos Energy, Petroceltic, Petrofac, JOGMEC, the International Energy Agency, FTI and Control Risks.
